Founder Chef Alain Lecomte has been working since he was 15 years old, with beginnings in Paris and Monte Carlo, France. In 2000, he was rewarded for his years of work and recognized as a Master Chef of France, a high honor indeed. He and his family moved to Virginia 12 years ago and he began working at Prince Michel Winery as a Chef, but he and Annie (his wife), held on to the dream of owning their own restaurant in Richmond, Virginia. Chez Max is the realization of that dream. Chez Max offers classical French cuisine and savory aromas drift from the kitchen as one enters the front door, giving a hint of culinary delights to come. The casual and comfortable, yet elegant interior of the restaurant is warm and inviting. A large stone fireplace adorns a corner in the main dining room, casting a soft glow around the room. Annie Lecomte and her professional team welcome you to share a memorable night with them.....

My husband & I never miss a chance to dine at Chez Max during the Valentine's Day week. Such a romantic setting!
It goes without saying that the food and wine are exquisite!

This is our go to restaurant for a taste of France. The taste, quality, and atmosphere is very special to us. We have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. It is our special place for special memories, do not miss it!

Service was slow and a rather inattentive. On the plate presentation excellent. Very few choices for Paleo.
Wine selection limited—the wine we chose based on the recommendation of the server, gave us both a headache immediately-meaning too many tannins. Please, Chez Max, choose better wines! We are happy to pay for good ones at such a venue.

We were very disappointed in our experience at Chez Max. First, we had looked up prices on the internet and when we got the menu at the restaurant, the prices had been raised. Then we ordered the calamari as an appetizer and it was undercooked and stringy. That was followed by the salad, which was a couple of rolled up leaves of lettuce and a few grape tomatoes. We were not asked about a choice of dressing. One man, two tables down from us was also surprised as we could tell by the look on his face when his salad was placed before him. Our entrees were good, however the sides, which again we had no choice in what they were, were extremely small. One was still hungry upon completion of meal. All in all, will probably never go back again!

It was the best meal I've had in a long time. The food, service, and atmosphere were all great. Being about 5 minutes from home means I'll definitely be back again.

We were looking something a little different for a special event (birthday). The food was OUTSTANDING and the menu providing a great deal of selection. This is a very fine restaurant.

Easily one of the top restaurants in our area. Food, ambience, service—everything is outstanding. Fellow diners are respectful of others, keeping conversations at a reasonable level. Unfortunately we are not finding this attribute in many restaurants these days. Just one more very positive thing about Chez Max.
